BROKEN HEART: 1

When?

Tell me, when?

How long?

How long does it take

for the pain to subside;

to dull to an ache?

The stab in the back;

arrow through the heart.

How long does it take?

I ask myself, what happened?

I ask myself, what went wrong?

I don’t, I can’t, I should ask him.

Why am I still asking?

It’s been so long.

But the pain never dies

and I’m still asking, why

wasn’t I good enough?

Why can’t I be strong?

How long?

Tell me, how long?

When?

When do the tears

cease their flow?

When will I believe

I can leave this place,

hold up my head

show my face?

When?

When will the shame pass,

the pain and the tears?

How long does it take?

How many more years?

BROKEN HEART: 2

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pulling me, pulling me

this way and that.

What do they want?

Every part of me.

I love them all;

I will never say no.

Can you please?

Would you mind?

I need you to,

have you the time?

Just, fetch, carry,

do it all.

The ones at home,

the ones afar,

the young ones,

the old ones

all pulling me.

And dare I ask

for one little thing?

No, they need me,

they don’t see

I need them too.

I cut myself

into so many parts,

but what is left

for me

at the end of the day,

a lonely worn out broken heart
